Quick Detailer Spray Advice

Hi all,

I'm looking for some advice on quick detailer sprays as I'm looking for an easier way to keep my pride and joy clean.

I live on the third floor in a block of flats, so, as you can imagine lugging buckets of water up and down the stairs is a no-no. I normally have to drive over to the folks and do it there which is just a pain.

I've been looking at detailer sprays to do the job and keep the car looking good. Is this a good idea? are they a long term solution?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated,

Cozzie

The quick detail sprays are really only for touch-ups and final finishing when you've driven somewhere. They aren't meant as a replacement for washing.

Move house!

Have a look into ONR and waterless wash tehniqes. Couple of things on the matey that are very good, either that or take your gear down the local self serve jetwash and just use the jetwash to fill buckets and for rinsing etc, usually have a couple of hot water only options that would be ideal.
